The Great Scottish Land Grab Book 1

The story of how Scotland became independent...

Robert Castle is fighting to save the UK Union when an incident while walking in the Scottish Highlands turns his life upside down.

A search for justice leads Robert to look deep into Scotland's history and what he finds will change not just his life, but the direction of a nation.

Serialized over three books during the summer of 2014, this is Book 1 of The Great Scottish Land Grab.

Book 2: The First Minister is missing... Scotland is divided... The referendum on Scottish independence is in crisis...

Only Robert Castle has a vision for Scotland that could unite both sides in the independence debate.

Sensing that the theft of Scotland's land over many centuries has robbed the people of their opportunity to be independent, Castle fights for a modern day land grab - to reverse the clearances that stole Scotland's land from the people.

Challenging an out of touch parliament, Robert turns government on its head by introducing Cafe Politics - a way for communities to debate and agree their own policies.

Book 3: "We've said all along that the fight for Scotland does not end with the referendum, well it doesn't end with this election either. Scotland has voted for a Land Grab and Scotland is going to get one!"

With these words, Robert Castle declares war on all who would oppose him as he seeks to overturn the injustice of the Highland Clearances.

But how far will Robert go in his determination to overturn the injustice of the Highland Clearances and will he lead Scotland to a better future or into civil war?

The king of Terror

The World Is Rapidly Changing - The SCO nations led by China are in the process of leaving the american petro-dollar for purchasing and selling petroleum in Yuan currency backed by Gold. Venezuela the biggest oil producing country has been under american sanctions - But now Venezuela has declared it will drop the petro-dollar and sell its oil in a basket of currencies, in particular a gold backed Chinese Yuan, but not american dollars.

The European Union - free of the United Kingdom after BREXIT - The EU can now go ahead with its hidden grand plan. That of completing a European Super state.

The world will soon trade in Yuan currency back by Gold - This will mean the end of the Petro-Dollar - The end of the American Empire.

It is such a panoramic exercise - China is busy rebuilding the ancient Silk Road. That will incorporate all asian nations - from China through Russia Iran and into a deep sea port in Greece in the Mediterranean.

North Korea is a scam. A scam to force the United States out of asia - through peace negations - where would North Korea suddenly obtain the technology for its nuclear weapons in such a short time? Nostradamus prophesised a King Of Terror and a King Of The Mongols. These two kings are here - NOW! Taking the world into the biblical prophesised tribulation.

The American and British people are asleep - soon they will become under siege by Asia - Led by China and Russia with a German Roman Catholic Led European Union along with central and southern america. The American and British people's are soon to suffer their worst defeat on the world stage.

HOW DID ALL THIS COME ABOUT ? This book 'The King Of Terror' explains the ultimate prophecy by Nostradamus.

The King of terror a book - it is a wake up call for those willing to face the truth and read what is soon to pass.

This book is about the Nostradamus king of terror prophecy. It is a book unlike any other written about his works. It sets out

to prove this prophecy is still unfolding. The idea came from years the author spent surfing the worldwide web for some kind of truth out of all the words, pages upon pages of Christian theology. It breathes and lives God's spoken word, uncovering Satan's lies and man-made religion. It is a book for the purest or to make the reader consider the question, who is the king of terror.

Both the US and Russia have at their disposal thousands of nuclear missiles. Nuclear war would mean the extinction of the human race. There would be no winner in this. Therefore, America's only strategy is to apply a slow throttling of the Russian leadership- Putin and those who back him. This has been tried with nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), attempted colour revolutions that have failed, while at the same time doing its best to

create a war between Europe (NATO) and Russia. Much to the calmness of the Russian leader, as though he were inside a dirty bar while a lumbering drunkard stares him out, Putin keeps his peace, elegantly looking the other way with majestic aplomb. Fortunately, Hollande and Merkel have seen right through this depraved American scam. The leaders of France and Germany are as out of tune with the transgression of American hegemony as Putin is.

The US must, and will, push into Europe a leader who 'will' push the party line for the warlords of American politics, to start a war between Europe and Russia so as to weaken the Russian leader and ultimately destroy Russia in the process.

But, unfortunately for America, Europe, Russia, and the rest of the world, it is the opinion of the author that this leader that the US will push upon Europe will be the king of terror, none other than the Antichrist itself! This plan as we shall see will backfire on the Americans with devastating consequences.
